A Flicker of Love

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Hi Friends,

Mondegreen is an odd word that means the mishearing of a phrase or the lyrics to a song. Over the years as my attention span and hearing have faded a little bit I am experiencing mondegreens on an increasing basis.

For example, there is a song that has the line “a flicker of love.” What I hear is, “the Vicar of love.” A Vicar is a religous leader. I think using the phrase ‘a Vicar of Love’ is cool. Maybe not correct but cool nonetheless. ‘Vicar of love’ is a mondegreen.

Perhaps your wife says, “Can you take the garbage out?” but you hear “You sure are getting stout.”  You can see how mondegreens can create problems out of thin air.

We sell a product called the “Loudmouth.” The manufacturer is Ritron and they came up with the name. I can’t think of a mondegreen for Loudmouth but I can understand how some people might think the name is coarse or somewhat offensive.

Usually we think of a loudmouth as someone who talks too much and says too little. Ritron’s Loudmouth is the opposite.

Loud Mouth is a wireless product that let’s you talk over your existing pubic address system with a 2 way radio. The school principal or factory security officer doesn’t need to be in his or her office to make an announcement. They simply turn their radio to a specific channel and they have immediate access to the campus PA system.

PA systems can be enlarged to include remote areas of a campus or any facility by adding very affordable wireless speakers. Because it is a wireless system there is no trenching and installation is quick and inexpensive.

If you do not have a PA system Loud Mouth is available as a complete PA system. Loud Mouth can make a huge difference in safety and efficiency.

Give us a call at 239-601-1969 to learn more about how Loud Mouth can work at your campus or facility. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.

Best Wishes,
